How to disable Firewall on Windows XP

(Newbie to Windows XP)Tried to download a Style File for my music keyboard. Wouldn't let do this and I assume it's because of firewall, so how is it disabled? Tried to follow instructions on Help menu, which said to open NETWORK CONNECTIONS and change the settings there, but there is nothing there that mentions NETWORK TASKS so I cannot go any further with these instruction. Any suggestion please????

Thanks

network connections, right click on your connection and select properties. Then select advanced. Switch off / turn on ICF there. : }

Thanks for that suggestion and Yes that works, but have gone back to the site I was at and tried again, but still no luck. So it was not the firewall that caused the problem, so I will turn it back on again. When I click on the file to download all I get is a blank page with a small symbol in the top right hand corner that has 3 small different coloured items in a box outline. Wierd, Oh well. can't have the files.

Thanks for your help.

You'd be better off disabling XP's firewall and switching to ZoneAlarm.
